Liquid Robotics Showcasing New SHARC SV3 at Upcoming International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (IMDEX Asia) 2013

Solutions for Real Time Sentinel Security, Subsea-to-Space Communications, MPA/EEZ Protection and Severe Weather Monitoring

SUNNYVALE, CA--(May 5, 2013) -


WHO: Liquid Robotics, a global ocean data services provider and developer of the world's first wave and solar powered autonomous surface vehicles, with global headquarters in Sunnyvale, CA, USA.

WHAT: Inaugural exhibition at Asia Pacific's flagship Maritime Defence show, IMDEX 2013. Liquid Robotics is making their debut and introducing to Asia Pacific Defence Maritime community the SHARC SV Series featuring the SHARC SV3, the world's first hybrid wave and solar propelled unmanned surface vehicle.

WHEN: 14-16, May 2013

WHERE: Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore, Liquid Robotics Booth #J24

WHY: The world's navies are continually challenged to patrol and secure greater geographic expanses through the harshest of weather conditions, 365 days a year. Shrinking budgets, operational constraints and changing mission requirements are requiring more cost effective and innovative solutions for maritime defence. Liquid Robotics' technologies and data services offerings can help solve these challenges. Through the use of the world's first wave and solar propelled autonomous surface vehicle, Liquid Robotics provides affordable solutions for defence applications ranging from protection of MPAs and EEZs to Maritime Domain Awareness.

The award winning SHARC (Defence brand for the Wave Glider) can patrol through all weather conditions (survived 5 hurricanes and 3 cyclones), last at sea for up to a year and provide real time subsea-to-space security monitoring and communications at 1/10th the cost of today's alternatives.

Come meet the SHARC SV3 and learn more about how Liquid Robotics may address your mission requirements.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
